Open Sound Architecture & Universal Trigger Interface
Say hello to the world’s first drum module with an Open Sound Architecture and a Universal Trigger Interface.
Play any pad of your choice
The original DrumIt concept was a truly ground breaking and new sensation in electronic drums when introduced. We are now taking this technology one step further and present the DrumIt Five MKII module with Open Sound Architecture and Universal Trigger Interface. Based on the same technology as the DrumIt Five we have now added the Universal Trigger Interface allowing the user to connect any kind of pad/trigger to the module*. The new DrumIt Five MKII comply with all popular major drum pad manufacturers’ pads, including cymbals and hi-hats.
Open Sound Architecture
Enter the world of DrumIt sounds to enjoy the real playing feel, the expressive dynamics and the superior sound quality. Update your old e-drum kit with modern sounds. Be amazed to suddenly being able to play buzz rolls and crescendo cymbals closer to the real thing than you could imagine possible. But it is!
Our free-of-charge sound library holds tons of multi-layered sounds for you, which were recorded in top studios and carefully edited. As the sounds consist of many velocity layers, the gradual change between faint and hard hits is faithfully reproduced. And our PC/Mac editor software not only allows you to manage module settings comfortably on your computer, you can also create your own sounds, loops and even complex multi-layer sounds. In order to do so you simply need to remove the SD card from the module and insert it into the card reader of your computer.
You can use the e-drum kit hardware you already have. Connect the module, tune in the trigger settings to your particular pad system and off you go, it’s as simple as that.
Play the sounds of famous drummers
The DrumIt Five MKII comes with stock sounds of Randy Black, Marco Minneman and Simon Phillips. If that is not enough for you there are plenty more sounds to be downloaded here.
Use other sound sources – Your sound possibilities are endless
Third party software allows you to convert sounds from famous drum sound libraries and play those sounds in your DrumIt Five MKII sound module instead of triggering sounds via MIDI to a PC. By playing the sounds from the module you will not experience any latency and time consuming compatibility issues. As the sounds are moved into the module, the playing feel is superior with ultra low latency and a great dynamic range.
Be in control
The Universal Trigger Interface of the DrumIt Five MKII allows the user to control functions for a trigger. For example, start and stop loops and/or Metronome by hitting a pad or change Kit up and down by hitting 2 pads.
